October 2016 - Editorial

Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:

Please let me first use my space here to repeat my announcement for a conference I believe will be of great interest to all our readers. The International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS) is organizing an International Conference on Film Forming Amines and Products. The conference will take place in Lucerne, Switzerland, from April 4–6, 2017. As a member of the steering committee, I would like to encourage all of you to attend the conference next year. We are still looking for presentations – especially presentations on users' experience with the application of film forming amines and film forming products in their power plants. For further details, you can consult the announcement and call for papers on page 228 of this issue, visit the webpage of the conference (www.scpws.ch), or contact me directly.

The conference is directly connected to a new Technical Guidance Document (TGD) on the application of film forming amines in fossil, combined cycle, and biomass power plants, one of two new TGDs released at the IAPWS annual meeting in Dresden, Germany, September 11–16, 2016. A press release of the meeting can be found on page 264 of this issue. A detailed report on the proceedings of the Power Cycle Chemistry working group will follow in the next issue of this journal. The two new TGDs can be found on the webpage of IAPWS (www.iapws.org) and are available for download at no expense.

Another conference I would like to mention here is the fourth Meeting of the EHF (European HRSG Forum). The conference will be taking place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on May 16–18, 2017. PowerPlant Chemistry is the media partner of this event, so mark it in your calendar – the details can be found on page 260.

Speaking of conferences and events – please let us know if there is an important event which we have failed to list on our events calendar. We'll add it in the next issue.

I'm looking forward to your letters and e-mails!
